Victorian vegetable growing operation Schreurs & Sons has partnered with the Soil Wealth and Integrated Crop Protection team to explore the application of precision agriculture technology in celery, leek and baby leaf production systems at the project’s Koo Wee Rup demonstration site.

The site tested technologies including EM38 mapping, gridded soil sampling, variable rate fertiliser spreading, remote monitoring of insect pests and beneficial identification traps with cameras to improve nutrition, irrigation and drainage management and insect pest and beneficial monitoring as a basis for soil and crop health.

Check out the latest case study, which captures the key findings and lessons learned over the past two years, a resourced developed and delivered by the Soil Wealth and ICP project (delivered by RM Consulting Group and AHR), funded by Hort Innovation.
